Vader Goes to the Beach in 'Lego Star Wars Summer Vacation' Trailer
"The trip isn't about the destination… it's about the journey." Disney has revealed an official trailer for the new Star Wars LEGO special titled LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation. Yes, this is real, and yes, it's ridiculous, but all of the LEGO specials made by Disney have been this wacky and fun and absurd. Following the events of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, with Rose, Rey, Finn, Poe, and Chewbacca looking to relax in the summer sun after their fateful battle with Emperor Palpatine. The galaxy's heroes need a vacation badly, but, as many family vacations often turn out, things don't go according to plan. Featuring the voices of "Weird Al" Yankovic, Yvette Nicole Brown, Kelly Marie Tran, Anthony Daniels, Billy Dee Williams, and returning cast members from previous "LEGO Star Wars" specials, along with "Weird Al's" new original song, Scarif Beach Party. Looks like so much fun! I like that it's set after Rise of Skywalker, because it provides some context even though it's odd they're escaping war to go to a beach. Enjoy anyway.
